with the plans for the america's cup? do you think the city should try it spend money to keep the 49ers? supervisor mar: did not get me started. i could go on for a long time. i think america's cup will help the whole area. i think the organizing committee has a big task to raise a lot of private sector money so it does not impact negatively on our general fund, but i do think the deal crafted by a lot of the enforcement is a good deal will help a lot of the parts of the city that need the help. it is also a lot of gauging of community groups and the yacht club saying that they want to provide better boating opportunities and education for young people in the mission district or, hopefully, in the mission or other places. but i know that as the america's cup moves forward, there are many community-based groups that want to be part of it. we recently had communications from the parks council wanting to ensure the swimming and blue and green projects could be created with the america's cup also encourages improvements of swimming pools so people see how water is a big part of our lives th

, america. i'm judge napolitano, guest hosting for glenn beck today. we have a lot to cover. let's start with the battle to rein in the ever-growing federal budget deficit. big government republicans in the house are leading up a pathetic charge to cut $61 billion in this year's federal budget. to put it in perspective, the federal government budget deficit for 2011 is projected to be $1.6 trillion. cutting $61 billion is a joke. but senate democrats won't be outdone when it comes to half-hearted or spineless spending cut measures they proposed additional $6.5 billion cut that the congressional budget claims is only $4.7 billion. can you follow any of this? america, too many politicians on both sides of the aisle have simply lost touch with reality when it comes to government spending. a $4.7 billion cut in the face of a $1.6 trillion deficit is akin to doing nothing when it comes to solving this problem. it's as if an alcoholic stood on a podium addressing fellow drinkers and proudly proclaimed that night at the bar, he would only have ten shot of jamison instead of the customary 11. ye

in america. these are bad priorities, they're bad policies and they're bad values. the right way is a balanced approach. this must include spending cuts. we've made cuts in my own appropriations bill buvment it also includes necessary revenue increases. while making room for vit kal investment -- kri critical investments for job creation in the future. we know this balanced budget approach can work, because i said that's what we it in the early 1990's under press clinton. we did both. we cut spending and we raised revenues. as i said, every republican voted against it. but that single act of congress and that bill signed by the president led to the largest budget surpluses and the longest economic expansion in u.s. history created 22 million new jobs. now, h.r. 1, that has come over from the house, their approach on how to bring the budget under control will kill jobs. mark zandi, top economic adviser to senator mccain's campaign estimated that h.r. 1 will kill some 700,000 jobs. federal reserve chairman bernanke estimates it will kill 200 now jobs. nobody knows for sure. but eve
